FixUS Survey: America’s Values, Goals, and Aspirations
This survey is part of the FixUS National Dialogue on Common Values, Goals, and Aspirations. The results will be combined with those from virtual dialogue focus groups with the hope of identifying and better understanding our common values, goals, and aspirations which may serve as a bridge to close our gaps at the national level.

This series of questions will ask you to examine different values and goals that you assign to yourself, your community, and your country. Most of the questions were drawn from a national poll conducted by Ipsos and FixUS, yet because polls can only scratch the surface on issues, we hope with this survey to obtain more qualitative feedback on these issues.
